Poetry by Dan Brady
Publishing Genius Press, February 2022

In an innovative form, Barrelhouse poetry editor Dan Brady plays with the methods of erasure poetry to create something entirely new. This collection of ten poems (in 88 pages) uncovers the networks of language and meaning through shifting layers of text. The poems focus on some of the greatest threats humans face in 2022—climate change, the surveillance state, America’s mental health crisis—and how our future hinges on our ability or failure to communicate.
